White Day

March 14th (exactly one month after Valentine's Day) is known as White Day in Japan. On Valentine's Day, women give chocolate to men. On White Day, men give some kind of present back in return, also often chocolate. This year, I brought in a batch of oatmeal raisin cookies on Valentine's Day and handed them out. For White Day, I received one package of chocolates all wrapped up from a chocolate specialty store, plus a KitKat that someone left on my desk secretly while my back was turned.

Aside from that, I haven't been doing much. Final exams are done and handed back, so the students are just watching movies and such, waiting for the closing ceremony next week.

Trivia of the day: Japanese hot dog buns come with a vertical split down the center of the top of the bun, making it open like a V, rather than a horizontal split along the side. They are used not only to hold hot dogs, but also yakisoba (stir-fried noodles), which I imagine would spill out if the split were horizontal.

In Warcraft, my main character has acquired a Talbuk mount. This mount is only sold by a particular faction. In order to purchase the mount, you have to get the members of this faction to like you by killing their enemies, thereby raising your reputation. The requirement is to become "exalted" (the highest level of reputation), which takes killing literally thousands of ogres. I don't really want to see any more ogres for a while... My next project is gaining enough gold to purchase an epic flying mount, which goes much faster than my current gryphon. I'm 80% of the way to the purchase price. (It's VERY expensive.)

I'm also still leveling alts. Tip: Never try taming a new pet the same level as you are when you have resurrection sickness. >_<
